As a periodontist and an implant specialist Dr. Attalla feels that communication is thekey ingredient necessary for a healthy smile. “For many having periodontal surgery, a tooth removed, getting a bone graft or a dental implant are all very frightening thoughts and I understand that. I enjoy working with each patient to establish the reasons for their anxiety and address them prior to going ahead with any procedure.”
Dr. Attalla spent her entire professional career on Long Island and is a proud SUNY Stony Brook alumni. She completed her Bachelor of Science degree, her doctorate in dental surgery and her three-year residency in periodontics and implantology all at the State University of New York at Stony Brook where she still maintains a faculty position.
Along with a patient’s general dentist, Dr. Attalla will help customize an individualized treatment plan so that the patient can gain a healthy and beautiful smile.
